    I've got a 5-1/4 set up with a 5" radius on the blade. I use it when a scrub seems like too much and a jack (8" radius) isn't fast enough.

    If the oak cracked when adding the nails, you just need a bigger pilot hole for the nails.

    I've got all the blade sizes and Latta DVD's (yes, I'm that guy) and the DVD's do help. The biggest help is doing a practice stringing or three.

    I started this hobby with the Shopsmith setup. I've moved up to Sawstop/Agazzani/Powermatic, but I still have the Powerstation with the SS 6 x 48 belt sander.
    It works great.

    It appears none of the sapwood is in the structural part of the plane so it shouldn't weaken it at all.
    I'd say the color variation it provides is a design element. To each their own.

    Make the drawer deep enough that they can be stored sitting on end. That way you can scan the cutting profiles without handling them.

    As a non-collector I'd keep the "Speed King". I can always find another Disston.

    This sounds like odd logic from a non-collector but the "Speed King" may be common and I just don't know it.

    I'm hoping when they reopen the order queue that their 18th century style chisels will be part of the product line.

    There's a guy with the US Forest Service that literally wrote the book on this. I think his name is Frank Miller. There's a paper book and a two hour on-line video.
    I'll try to verify his name.

    I centered my Moxon screws as you are planning to do. The only drawback is when clamping something that does not extend 4" down into the jaws.

    An 1-1/2" rabbet and an 1-1/8" round. To help keep it consistent over a long length, I'd make a test gauge that looked like a scratch stock.

    How good are you at keeping the shop at the left end of your bench clear?
    The left end of my bench is 2' from the wall, so a vise at the far left wouldn't be ideal.
